I'm glad to find a resource were I have access to the real pro's of food. You never stop learning and learning food is my passion. I love food. I was taught by the two best cooks in the area, my mom and grandma. I'm 58 and have been in the kitchen since I could hold a spoon. Cooking is my passion. I have not been to a formal school but the folks I cook for think I have. I love the grill and smoker.
